Arguably the most consistent QB for fantasy, Allen is my QB two for 2023. His rushing upside paired with his cannon of an arm, gives him a rock-solid floor and a limitless ceiling. Now with the addition of Dalton Kincaid, he has another weapon to help maintain his top-tier fantasy finishes.

How good is Josh Allen? He wasn't even 100% last year and he still finished as a top 2 QB. And that was with one of his top WRs, Gabriel Davis, fighting an ankle injury for much of the season. Because of his aggressive style, Allen subjects himself to more punishment than other QBs. The Bills reportedly would like him to play more cautiously. We'll see. Allen's physical nature and will to win no matter the cost are a few of the things that make him great. If he changes his style too much it would not bode well for his stats. His rushing ability and threat to run in the red zone help distinguish him from other elite QBs. The signing of free agent Damien Harris could be problematic if the Bills wish to give him the ball over Allen in the red zone. Despite those concerns, Allen is elite. He's a big part of why Buffalo has one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Adding rookie TE Dalton Kincaid will only make the Bills' offense more potent. Allen's current ADP of QB 2 is well justified. Of course, if I didn't rank him high The Bills Mafia would have me whacked. Then, afterward, they'd send a fish to my family. It's a Sicilian message. Mark Ringo sleeps with the fishes haha!

He's finished Top 2 at QB for 3 straight seasons, and his rushing attempts keep climbing

Josh Allen finished QB2 in fantasy scoring behind Patrick Mahomes last season after finishing QB1 in 2020 and 2021. Allen remains capable of putting fantasy teams on his shoulders in any given week with multi-TD spike games. He's thrown for more than 4,000 yards in three straight seasons and has finished with 35 to 37 TD passes every year during that span. Allen adds immense value with his legs. He's run for 700+ yards in each of the last two years and has had at least six TD runs in each of his five NFL seasons. Allen is likely to be the first QB off the board in most 2023 fantasy drafts.

Allen hurt his elbow in Week 9 vs the Jets. Weeks 1-8 he averaged 28.1 PPG; Hurts averaged 25.2 over that time period and Mahomes averaged 25. Hurts averaged 26.8 on the season and Mahomes 25.9. At this best, Allen is the highest scorer between the three. I prefer Mahomes in Dynasty but in Redraft, Allen is this number one.

Josh Allen had 4,283 yards passing, 35 passing TDs, 762 rushing yards, and 7 rushing TDs. He is an elite QB1 that is as consistent as any fantasy option in the NFL.

Allen suffered a UCL injury to his throwing elbow during the Nov. 6 loss to the New York Jets. Allen didn't miss a start, but the Bills did appear to limit his running in order to protect against additional hits to his elbow. At 26 years-old, Allen has a decade of fantasy dominance left in him.
